The Dreaded Middle

November 12, 2000


Will today be the best day of my life? Unfortunately the answer is most likely “no”. Because I look forward to a bright future possessing beauty and contentment all in one, it is difficult for me to believe that the predictable tomorrow will be the best day of my life. A person can live their whole life without experiencing that perfect day. Maybe they wouldn’t recognize it, or perhaps their expectations were too high. If you could live each day as if it were the last day of your life, would you even know where to begin? As the truth is always boring, it is sufficient to assume that tomorrow will be much like today. Of course, there are explanations to this reality and it is with this group that I wish to belong. On a whole, life is nothing but a routine, but I would like to behold diversity in my daily regime. I feel I am letting my days go to waste, and although I know tomorrow will bring little change, I take it for granted as if I were immortal. Advice that is not worth giving: if you don’t like it, change it.
